A study examined the vocational guidance needs of young people in Greece. Available literature on the following topics was reviewed: transitions of young people to economically active life; available vocational guidance services; transitions of youth from education to work; youths who abandon compulsory education; and young women with gymnasion/lykeion leaving certificates but without vocational training. Greece's system of schools vocational guidance was found to be a newly emerged institution that has yet to play an important role in informing and guiding Greece's young people concerning their occupational decisions and that contains no provisions whatsoever for meeting the needs of youths in crisis, youths facing specific problems with vocational guidance, and youths preparing to enter the labor market. It was emphasized that, like any relatively new institution, Greece's system of schools vocational guidance can only be improved by continual assessment of its application and identification of its weak points by researchers outside education.
